    I ordered this book after watching the Waco miniseries that covered one of the situations the author worked on as a negotiatorThis book is fascinating so many experiences all told engagingly with great warmth humanity and humility It is a great engrossing read in its own rightWhile it is not intended to be an instructional textbook on negotiation if you are studying the subject then it provides some great examples of how problems can be solved but sewn into truly memorable case studies so it is a great way to put meat on the bones of anything else you may be reading that you might perhaps be finding a little dryA great book

    This is normally the type of book that I am engrossed inSorry but I found this boring Too many people names and facts to remember as opposed to just telling the stories

    Gary gives a clear account of his role and how the use of Negotiators has developed A good account of the relationshiptrust between the Negotiator and the incident commander and how the benefits of negotiation were slowly recognised by the wider FBI His account of Waco seemed a little too simplistic but helped to illustrate the FBI is an organisation that learns from its experiencesSome good practical examples of negotiation principles being used to save lives Very much a US standpoint which can be uite different to other countries particularly in terms of the use of fatal forceVERY good value and a recommended read for anyone with an interest in negotiation Armed Policing and incident commandWorth reading alongside Cialdini Influence
